Cyberbullying: Understanding and Addressing Online Cruelty

Building a Foundation for Safe and Kind Online Communication (K-12 Curriculum)

The purpose of this lesson is to encourage safe and kind Internet communication among young children, and to provide students with basic skills for responding productively to online bullying and social aggression.  Students use literature, fictional scenarios and creative expression to explore the ways in which Internet communication can amplify hurtful words and to practice responses to hurtful online messages.  Students also focus on ways that they can use the Internet to make others feel good and implement online kindness projects in class.
